Dear Parents:

With the month of January behind us, we look forward to the fun-filled month of February to keep us busy and bring us that much closer to spring…let’s keep our fingers crossed!!  Most of our time at EDP in the past month has been spent focusing on the Variety Show, which takes place Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 6:00.  The snow date is Thursday, Feb. 15.  Don’t forget to sign up to bring in refreshments for that night!  For those that haven’t signed up, the sign-up clipboard is near the parent sign-out.   If your child does not normally attend EDP on Tuesdays, he or she is welcome to come that day (Feb. 13th) as our guest-just let an EDP teacher know.  We will feed all the children supper that day so you don’t have to worry about it.  Otherwise, please drop him or her off to the Warren School EDP by 5:40 that day so we can have everyone ready for 6:00.  The goal is to start the show promptly at 6:00 and we do not start until at least one parent from each child’s family is present.  


    Please keep in mind that we are having two full cast rehearsals for the show.  While we have been practicing everyday during EDP, these BIG rehearsals are when we do a run-through of the entire show while all the children are together.  The first one is Wednesday, Feb. 7, and the second one is Monday, Feb. 12.    


    The February birthday celebration will take place on Thursday, Feb. 8.  Happy Birthday this month to:  Bailey F., Liam F., Jenna G., Thayla L., Max N., Alex P., and Riley T.  If you are the parent of a February birthday child and would like to send in a special snack for that day, please let us know.


  ImagArena is back, this time for our first grade students!  The registration flyer was placed in your child’s take-home folder on 1/22.    ImagArena is free of charge; however, if a class is missed not due to illness, you will have to pay a fee of $10.00 per missed class.  ImagArena will take place on Thursdays and will run for 6 weeks.   It is from 4:15-5:00  on the following dates:  3/1, 3/8, 3/15, 3/22, 3/29, and the last one is 4/5.   Permission slips are due by 2/9.

    Tuition is due on or before the 25th of each month for the following month.  We do not send out a monthly bill for tuition.  You may submit a check or money order in person  or mail to Ashland Extended Day, 73 Fruit St., Ashland, MA, 01721.   A $5.00 late fee is added after 5 business days of non-payment.  Here is a schedule for when tuition is due for the year of 2017-18:


            February:  1/25

            March:  2/26

            June:  5/25, if applicable


    PLEASE REMEMBER TO CALL EDP OR SEND AN EMAIL IF YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ATTENDING EDP!!!   While we do communicate with the front office of the Warren School, we do ask that you also notify EDP if your child is absent from school, goes home on the bus, is getting picked up early from school, goes home from school sick, etc.   This is a safety issue!  Our main concern is the safety of your child!  Please let us know by 2:45.  Email: or phone: 508-532-8043


   The Ashland Extended Day Program closes each day at 6:00.  If you do not think you will be able to pick your child by 6:00, please be sure to arrange for someone else to pick your child up.  EDP staffers work other jobs, have families and obligations too, so please be respectful of time.    The cost for late pick up is $1.00 per minute.  

     Please do not hesitate to call, email, or stop in to the EDP room with any questions or concerns.  You can send emails to   Have a great February!
